Travel and Security Tips

Airport security can take time, so please be patient with any additional personal and luggage searches and please carry only one piece of hand luggage.

Allow for increased security. Before departing for the airport please check your flight is on time and confirm what time your airline requires you to check-in. As a general guideline, plan to arrive at the airport one hour prior to scheduled departure for UK domestic flights and two hours prior to scheduled departure for international flights.

Do not pack any of the following in your hand luggage: Toy/replica guns (metal or plastic) Catapults Household cutlery, Knives with blades of any length, Razor blades, Tools, Darts, Scissors, Tweezers, Hypodermic needles (unless required for medical reasons) Knitting needles, Sporting bats, Billiard, snooker or pool cues.


Tips for Healthy Flying        

  • Drink plenty of water before and during the flight - dehydration is a common cause of headaches and discomfort.

  • Don't eat too heavily before or during a long flight - to avoid indigestion and hypertension.

  • To reduce jetlag, have some extra sleep before the trip, get some sleep during the flight and try to synchronise mealtimes with the time it is at your destination.

  • Wearing flight socks, taking a low dose of aspirin or moving about every so often during the flight can help prevent Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT). It is advisable to consult your doctor before taking any additional medications however.

  • If you have any existing medical conditions, consult your GP before flying. You may, if you wish, get a Medical Information Form (MEDIF) from your airline.

  • Be alert to signs of DVT. If you have sore, swollen or discoloured legs, or pains in the chest, back or arms after flying seek medical advice.
